Hi I have a chance to get a good deal on a Seagate Cheetah 15k SAS 300 146gb drive ($40 USD open never used- I can run diagnostics like SMART on it before purchase)
Will this be a big improvement on my current Seagate Barracuda 250gb 7200 rpm drive?
if anybody has good benchmark links to the Cheetah that would be appreciated
I prefer the Black for its longer warranty, but it's slightly more expensive. I don't think that you'd be able to see a performance difference between them. If price is important, then buy the least expensive one.
